Patch 5.1 Dominance Offensive: Rise of the Blood Elves
In this episode of the Dominance Offensive achievement, the story takes us to the Silvermoon City where Lor’Themar Theron has requested Archmage Aethas Sunreaver to offer his expertise in magic to decipher the puzzle box located at the Farstrider Square’s basement (Where M’uru used to be at).
This story seems to hint at the uprising of the Blood Elves against Garrosh. Archmage Aethas Sunreaver discovers the only way to use the mogu box and their magic is to capture souls. This is something grotesque the Blood Elves are certain they can’t let Garrosh put them through. This is not the path any should ever take. It’s compared to the path Prince Kael’thas Sunstrider took their race through.
Get My Results!
General Nazgrim: Ah, (name). The Warchief has instructed me to dispatch you to Silvermoon.
He grows impatient with the progress of Lor’themar’s research and feels they might benefit from your … unique … experiences with the mogu.
Go to Silvermoon and demand that Lor’themar increase the speed of his research.
Speak with Lor’themar Theron in Silvermoon City.
Note: Use the hearthstone to Shrine of Two Moons. Walk to the second floor and take the portal to Silvermoon City.
Lor’themar Theron: The Warchief “demands” progress? His impatience is growing more destructive with each command.
As it stands, we could use your expertise.
What’s in the Box?
Lor’themar Sunstrider: We are trying to uncover the secrets of one of the mogu artifacts Garrosh insisted we investigate. It is proving most difficult, as anyone who probes it magically is greatly affected by raw, negative emotions.
I called in the assistance of Archmage Aethas of the Sunreavers in the hopes that he and Rommath could crack this puzzle. They asked for you specifically – apparently you have some relevant experience?
Go to the chamber below Farstrider Square east of here and see if you can assist them.
Assist with Aethas and Rommath’s experiment.
Note: Head toward the Farstrider Square district. At the left corner when you enter the district is the entrance to the basement. At the entrance is one of those Mechanar robots: the Arcanis Mechanica.
Arcanis Mechanica yells: –ATTENTION (NAME). YOUR PRESENCE IS REQUESTED IN THE CHAMBER BEHIND THIS UNIT.–
(Locate the Arcanis Mechanica: 1/1)
Arcanis Mechanica: — GREETINGS, (NAME), PLEASE PROCEED DOWN THE TUNNEL BEHIND THIS UNIT, HIS HIGH AND POWERFULNESS THE GRAND MAGISTER ROMMATH AWAITS YOUR ARRIVAL. —
Grand Magister Rommath: Jaina Proudmoore now sits as head of the Kirin Tor and rules Dalaran.
That puts the citadel square in the hands of the Alliance no matter how much Aethas brags about neutrality.
This young upstart may have forgotten, but the Alliance tried to imprison and massacre our people during the third war.
Forgive me if I do not share his faith in their … “neutrality”.
(Lor’themar wants a status update on the experiment.)
Grand Magister Rommath: This Korune device is similar to the fel crystals we once used to enslave demonic energies. Demon or angry spirit or elemental manifestation of an emotion, the principle is relatively the same.
We need to see how intact the entity stored within this artifact is, however. Since you have experience with the mogu and the other dangers of Pandaria, would you be so kind as to do the honors?
We have already disabled most of the protective wards. Simply adjust the intensifier disc on the artifact and be ready for anything that comes out.
(Speak with Grand Magister Rommath: 1/1)
Archmage Aethas Sunreaver: Silvermoon has been allies with Dalaran for over 2000 years. It is not a friendship we should idly toss aside at the whim of our ‘esteemed’ Warchief Garrosh.
Oh … are you here about the artifact?
(Lore’themar wants a status update on the experiment.)
Archmage Aethas Sunreaver: Lor’themar wants a status update? Or is it his master Garrosh?
You should tell them both that this experiment is a waste of time. The mogu drew power by enslaving the living essence of other creatures. Is this something our Warchief should be dabbling in?
This is the same road Kael’thas Sunstrider once walked, and it nearly destroyed our people. Why are we taking orders from someone who would have us walk down this road again?
(Speak with Archmage Aethas Sunstrider: 1/1)
(Player opens the box’s intensifier disc.)
Archmage Aethas Sunreaver: Enough Rommath! The Sin’dorei must be free from the yoke of the Horde!
Note: The player gains a buff. Pure Emotion: Increases Attack and Spell Power by 100% and Damage Taken by 10%.
(Concentrated Sha dies)
(Contain the experiment: 1/1)
Archmage Aethas Sunreaver: What … what was that?
Lor’themar Theron: What madness is this?
Grand Magister Rommath: It has been an age of the world or more since I felt any emotion at even a fraction of that.
Archmage Aethas Sunreaver: Rommath … I … I don’t know what came over me.
Grand Magister Rommath: It would seem this “sha” energy is far more powerful than I previously thought.
Lor’themar Theron: This reckless use of my people by Garrosh is becoming intolerable. If you had not been here to assist I dread to think what might have happened.
(Dominance Offensive Achievement Progress: Rise of the Blood Elves)
Note: Walk back upstairs. The Arcanis Mechanica robot nicely opens a portal to Domination Point (Krasarang Wilds).
